Fanatic! I hope you had a great week. I’ve been on a lot of highways and in a lot of airports getting things done. I saw the great Nashville band Snooper play several nights ago. The show I saw apparently will be released as a limited cassette. Their records are great and live they were awesome. I suggest you check them out at the soonest. Here’s t…
 
Fanatic! Happy Saturday to you. Finally, after months of waiting after months of work, literally years in the making, I can tell you about two records Larry Hardy and I have been working on. They were released yesterday. From the master tapes we have generated two 12”s. One is the three song session that informed the first Ruts record with In A Rut…
 
Fanatic! I hope the week was great. Engineer X and I have been working on the last of the November shows and are now pushing into December and beyond. Not that you would find this interesting but we were told my new book, Sic, was held up at the printer because they couldn’t get the correct paper stock. We just got a message that not only did they …
 
Fanatic. I hope you had a great week. I finished the shows for the year last Saturday night. I wish the dates went to the end of the year. Sorry about not posting the notes in time last week. The jet lag effect of being in Honolulu was not subtle. The shows were good but sleep was elusive. Since I’ve been back I’ve been listening to a lot of vinyl.…
 
Fanatic. I hope you’ve been doing great and listening to a lot of music. I’m about to leave for the last three shows of the year, which will be in Honolulu. I’ll come back from that and get back to work on things at the office and get ready to sign copies of my new book Sic, which we will put on sale as soon as they return from the printer, hopeful…
 
Fanatic! I’ve been off the road for about a week now. I’d rather be out with a show waiting for me every night. The upside is I have access to my records and I’m trying to take advantage of that but I’d rather be on the bus with the pressure of a show. So into this record! New Hammered Hulls LP on Dischord, coming out at the end of the month. Here’…
 
Fanatic! I hope the month of months has been treating you well. I’ve been doing a lot of backstage listening sessions before I head out for the show. I’m off the road for a couple of weeks, so I’m looking forward to getting the record player going. Tonight, we have another bit of concept listening. If you see below, we’re checking out The Idiot, th…

One in the news recently is the Campus For At-Risk Children in Watts being designed by Frank Gehry.And unveiled Saturday – with a cele…
 
Berliners are facing many of the same challenges as Angelenos in terms of affordable living space, as well as coming to grips with changing family structure; but, they have come up with an intriguing solution. Baugruppen, meaning building groups, are cohousing communities where you choose who you want to live alongside and then split the costs of d…
 
While in Berlin, DnA’s producer Caroline Chamberlain visited the world’s first board game cafe called Spielwiese. She met with the designers of some games dealing with some very German challenges. “Cool am Pool” is a board game coming soon by Hartwig Jakubik that has players compete over the best places by the pool. Caroline learns how it works and…
 
Frank Lloyd Wright’s first L.A. commission, the Hollyhock House, opens once more to the public after a lengthy restoration. Alan Hess, an architect and preservationist who has written five books on Frank Lloyd Wright, talks about why he can’t wait for the building’s opening and what we can learn from Frank Lloyd Wright today.…
 
Huntington Beach approved a reusable bag ordinance last month. Channel 2 reports, while many agree with the goal to cut down on the 123 thousand tons of discarded plastic bags in the state every year, a lot of residents in HB are hot under the collar that the ban wasn’t put on the ballot. They say if the city is worried about the beaches, they shou…
